Defending champions Espoir, who won Games 1 and 2 before losing Game 3, will be looking to complete the job today and retain the crown for the third time in a row.

Jean Bahufite’s team are still recovering from a poor showing at the just concluded Fiba/Africa zone five club championships held in Mombasa, Kenya where they failed to reach the knockout stage.

And CSK will be seeking to take advantage of ‘low’ morale in their opponents’ camp, according to head coach Bob Ngoga.

He said: “Pressure is on us, we have everything to lose but Espoir might have another chance on Sunday if they lose today, we are determined to win Saturday’s game.”
